kill-task syntax?
Keith Wiley 2011-03-23, 21:02
hadoop job -kill-task and -fail-task don't work for me.  I get this kind of error:

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: TaskAttemptId string : task_201103101623_12995_r_000000 is not properly formed
at org.apache.hadoop.mapreduce.TaskAttemptID.forName(TaskAttemptID.java:170)
at org.apache.hadoop.mapred.TaskAttemptID.forName(TaskAttemptID.java:108)
at org.apache.hadoop.mapred.JobClient.run(JobClient.java:1787)
at org.apache.hadoop.util.ToolRunner.run(ToolRunner.java:65)
at org.apache.hadoop.util.ToolRunner.run(ToolRunner.java:79)
at org.apache.hadoop.mapred.JobClient.main(JobClient.java:1956)

How is that not a properly formed task id?  I copied it straight off the job tracker?  Killing a job generally works for me........although much to my dismay the job often doesn't actually die, which is why I'm not attempting to kill the underlying tasks directly.

Thanks.
